On 14th March 2022, Apple released iOS 15.4 for all its supported iPhones. iOS 15.4 brought some quality of life improvements, including a new Face ID system that allowed users to unlock their iPhones using Face ID with a mask on. However, much to our annoyance, iOS 15.4 came with many glitches and bugs. Users reported a lot of bugs and glitches, including battery draining issues. This should not last long as Apple is about to release iOS 15.5 to fix these issues to a certain extent.
iOS 15.5 Features
Generally speaking, updates make phones better than they previously were. The same goes for iOS 15.5, which is expected to improve many things over iOS 15.4. With iOS 15.5, Apple may finally fix the battery draining issue, which is being reported on many iPhones, specifically iPhone 12 and 13. The bugs and glitches are also expected to be fixed with this update.
Some new features are also expected to be released with this update. These new features include a better Face ID system, a new look to notifications, better focus mode, new Maps features and some spotlight and photos features, which will make using them easier. Privacy will also see some improvements over iOS 15.4. You may now be able to see how an app handles your personal information.
